“For those who love spiritual fiction books; this is one book you won’t be able to put down! A book filled with entertainment, tips, tools & techniques that will inspire you and give you a new prescription on how to view life differently from how our society perceives it.”

Ruth’s passion and creativity are expressed in her work. For forty years, she practiced individual psychotherapy. She devised her orientation to working with the unconscious inner world from her interest in imagery.

Dr. Cherry has written five books but never decided to write a book. They just came to her as the words set in her intuition. Each time, she felt the pull to sit at the computer, then as Ruth tuned into her mind, the words naturally flowed to the computer screen. “Open Your Heart” was one of those unpredictable masterpieces.


I found this book to be very inspiring, entertaining, and motivational. Packed with an entertaining story and a very powerful message behind this spiritual fiction book.

“Open Your Heart,” is filled with fabulous insight on how to cope, overcome and turn your life around including outstanding examples on how to break the walls that many people build to protect themselves from hurt and destruction.

Anne the main character experiences truths and triumphs in her daily life using her inner voice Hannah as a direction to help her let go of the past, focus on the present, so she can open her heart to let the wonderful aspects of life into her world. As Hannah puts it, “surrendering to life.”

The book is filled with fun-loving characters that draw you into the book and make you crave for more.

This intriguing spiritual fiction book begins in the kitchen as Ruth Cherry introduces you to Hannah, the main character’s (Anne’s) inner voice, the character Hannah who she created from within, guides her and helps her with the situations that impact her present life.

Dr. Ruth Cherry’s book, “Open Your Heart,” gave me the insights to understand that we cannot control the world around us or the people who live in it, but we can change how we react to people and situations by listening to our inner self and following our heart.

Dr. Cherry’s message in the book is to teach to let go, listen to the heart, and surrender to life. Our life presents us with exactly the opportunities we need to heal and to grow.

We can trust life. Life knows us better than we know ourselves and life knows what we need to experience in order to heal. Healing is moving more fully into our highest and best selves.

The ending of the book will leave you speechless as this well-paced spiritual fiction touches your heart and gives you the surprise of your life as the author provides an amazing, unexpected ending that will “Open Your Heart.”

Get ready for a whirlwind of emotion as this heartwarming inspirational fiction will bring you closer to a surprising resolution that you wouldn’t anticipate. I find Open Your Heart a rewarding, motivating, inspiring, and enjoyable read.

Get Balanced, Get Blissed

The Keys to Transformation

I found this book to be very heartwarming, informative, and motivational. Packed with touching stories from her rocky journey in life as she shares advice and guidance on how she was able to take the traumatic obstacles that crossed her life path and use them as a motivator to grow and create positive change in her life.  Get Balanced, Get Blissed is filled with fabulous insight on how to cope, overcome and turn your life around including great advice on nutrition and mediation, which not only help your body get into shape but will make you feel a thousand times better.

Lynne Goldberg’s book, Get Balanced, Get Blissed,” gave me the insights to understand that we are not alone.  Everyone in life goes through tragic events at some point in their life and there are some people who unfortunately are faced with obstacles every day of their lives.

The trick is how do we cope with these obstacles?

Do we let the negative things that happen to us in life get the best of us and slowly destroy us making us feel angry, saddened, and depressed? Or do we reach out to others with experience in this field to teach us how to accept the negative things that occur in our lives and use them to empower us to make positive changes in our lives that will help us live in the moment and appreciate the life we live and the air we breathe?

Lynne Goldberg teaches you in this book how to turn your life around in a step-by-step regimen that that easy to do and very self-rewarding.

One important factor, I learned from this book is that you need to make sure you maintain a healthy connection with your mind, body, and soul.  The reason for this is that you need all three connected in order for your body to operate at full capacity and most important in order to live a happy, healthy, and productive life.

In chapter 1, she opens up and lets you into her world sharing her ups and downs and the pain she endured while struggling to go on with her life while the obstacles she encountered kept trying to run her over.  She discusses the concept of bliss and talks about how to make bliss a part of your own life.

As you enter chapter 2, she discusses nutrition and goes on to explain how what we put into our bodies has a huge impact on the way we feel.  She includes studies and research that show how we could heal our bodies and improve our mental and physical health by incorporating the right foods into our diet.  Goldberg not only discusses how to eat right, but she also shows you how to transform your entire life as the book continues.

Lynne Goldberg’s natural, holistic approach helped me realize that WE control our bodies. We can change…

  • Our appearance
  • Thinking
  • Emotions
  • And more…

by providing our bodies with nurturing and nutrients using healthy foods, positive relationships, meditation, and exercise.   We do not need to rely on pills.  We need to rely on ourselves.

As you continue reading, you will find on page 48 she discusses the environment we live in plays a big role in the way we take care of our bodies.  From this chapter, I learned that in order for change to occur we need to become leaders, not followers.  We need to learn to care for our environment because after years of abusing the environment we are experiencing negative outcomes.  It is affecting our health and causing many unnecessary health conditions that we could avoid.  We also need to eat the way some other countries do.  We consume so much processed, toxic foods in such large quantities that our country’s ways of life are slowly killing us.

If people change, teach, and advocate a better way of living then change will occur.  We need to change ourselves first then go out to become an advocate and fight for a better way of living for the people in our country.  Fight for what is right.  If the majority of society changes then the corporate world will have no choice, but to change too.  Corporations and companies only produce when there is a demand for something.  If we change our lifestyle they will have no choice, but to change too because the demand for it will be gone.  I am up for the challenge.  Are you?

Lynne also provides a 21-day Challenge where she walks you through the transformation process and helps create a life for you that you probably thought was not possible.  I enjoyed how the book provides you with the stepping-stones and techniques to transform yourself the natural way.  Lynne Goldberg the author, provides the reader with extraordinary tools and techniques that help you achieve all your goals both long and short-term goals.

In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you can transform your life and create the life you always wanted for yourself. A life filled with happiness, inner peace, good health, and bliss.

Lynne Goldberg’s book is an excellent book that I highly recommend to others.

Internationally famous relationship therapist, author, and media personality, Dr. Jamie Turndorf (aka Dr. Love) spoke with the Manalapan heath Examiner sharing the amazing true story of her spiritual reconnection with her beloved deceased husband, internationally renowned former Jesuit priest, Emile Jean Pin. Discovering for herself that relationships don’t end in death, Dr. Turndorf has created a groundbreaking new grief therapy method that combines her acclaimed conflict-resolution methods with after-death communication. The result: An unprecedented method that enables the bereaved to reconnect, heal unfinished business, and make peace with the deceased. Here is an amazing interview on how Dr. Jamie reconnected with her husband and then shared her experience with the world in her latest book, “Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased.”


While we were vacationing in Italy, Emile Jean Pin, my beloved husband and life partner of nearly 30 years, suffocated before my eyes from a mistreated bee sting. For most of his life, Jean had been one of the most famous Jesuit priests in history. Since his death, he has been coming to me in spirit form.

Unlike Jean, whose life was steeped in religion, Dr. Jamie Turndorf was raised by two Jewish atheists. The only religion they practiced was religiously hating each other! She never went to church or read the Bible. In fact, her parents taught her to not believe in God or the afterlife. Her lack of belief was abruptly shattered after Jean’s death. To ensure that she wouldn’t dismiss the events, his persistent and astonishing manifestations have often occurred in front of witnesses, thereby proving beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the spirit does, indeed, live on.

The following are but two examples of what is included in the book: For the past thirty years, Dr. Jamie Turndorf has suffered from a metabolic disorder that baffled doctors. When Jean and Jamie first met, she was a size four.

Suddenly, without making any alteration to her eating or exercise habits, she ballooned to three hundred pounds in a couple of months. No matter what exercise or diet regime she tried (including a ten-month green juice fast) nothing worked. When the weight gain occurred in the early eighties, Jean told her that he had a vision of her melting away. She asked him, “When?” He said, “I don’t know.” Right before we left for Italy, he told Jamie that he again had the vision of her melting. Jamie asked him, “When?” This time he said, “Very, very soon.” Soon after his death, Jean came to her in spirit form and said, “I had to go. I needed to be in the form I’m in to help you better.

I finally have the power to fix your metabolic disorder. I’m rebirthing you.” I changed nothing in my habits and in a few months I melted to my former size. Another example. Soon after Jean’s death, Dr. Jamie had to fax a letter to Verizon to remove his name from our phone line. She was told to fax a cover letter along with his death certificate. She had sent many multi-page faxes earlier in the day without a problem. However, each time she tried to fax his death certificate, the cover letter was faxed without a hitch, but the death certificate wouldn’t fax.

She tried to fax his obituary instead. The same thing happened. The cover letter was faxed but the obit didn’t. She tried twenty times. No dice. She said aloud, “I think you’re trying to tell me you’re not gone!. The next day, she took the documents to the lawyer. The same thing happened at his office. The secretaries came out of the back office, crying. They said, “He wants you to know that he’s not gone.” The next day Jamie had to fax the cover letter and his death certificate to another company. The same thing happened. Jamie said aloud, “You keep doing this because I keep forgetting that you’re still here with me. If I promise to remember, will you let the death certificate go through?” Jamie canceled the fax. She suddenly felt a huge wave of love pouring into herself. She dialed the fax again and it went through in its entirety.


Since the beginning of time, humans have hoped and prayed that an afterlife exists. Until now, this belief has been based on a leap of faith, rather than a confirmed reality. Our story is proof positive that there is life after life.

Jean has asked her to tell their story, to prove that the spirit lives on, to confirm that relationships do not end in death, and to ease the two most universal and dreaded fears: that of loving and losing and that of death and dying. Whenever Dr. Jamie tells their story, nothing short of miracles occurs. Reactions are generally grouped into two separate camps: There are those who are immensely relieved and comforted to discover the truth. For these people, simply knowing that continued contact is possible readies them to begin their own process of reconnecting.

The other camp experiences a sense of jealousy, despair, hurt, or anger. These people invariably say, “Why is your husband in contact with you? My loved one never comes to me!” In response, She describes the various signs of spirit presence. In a matter of minutes, she is hearing, “That happened to me…and so did that!” For members of this group, becoming aware of the signs is all that is needed to release the deadbolt of ignorance that has sealed the door of their hearts. In no time, they, too, are peering through the peephole, beholding their loved ones once more. Some people have voiced the objection that reconnecting with those who have passed prevents people from “moving on” with their lives. Jean’s answer to this objection is simple. Our hearts are made to love. There is no limit to the number of people we can love, and more than enough room in our hearts to love those who have passed as well as those who walk the earth.

During this past year, Dr. Jamie’s ability to tell their story and the share of their new grief therapy method has been guiding the bereaved to reconnect and make peace in ways that have never before been possible. The healing and peace that results are astonishing—and extremely gratifying, says Dr. Jamie Turndorf.

About the book:

As a result of her experiences with her husband in spirit form, Dr. Jamie Turndorf has discovered that we don’t die and relationships don’t end in death. As a therapist, Dr. Jamie says that the traditional Western approach to grief (grieve, let go, and move on) often leaves the bereaved at an even greater loss.

By contrast, my method guides people to reconnect rather than say goodbye. The bereaved can reconnect to whatever degree they desire. Some may simply wish to reestablish contact in the early stages of loss, to help them work through grief. Those who have lost a loved one to sudden, tragic death have been robbed of the chance to say farewell and, if needed, make amends. These people desperately need to reconnect.

There are other cases in which ongoing connection is desirable as well. Reconnecting is a lifeline, especially for the elderly who may not wish to form another primary attachment.

Likewise, parents who have lost children also desperately need to reconnect and stay connected, as do children who have lost parents. But reconnecting is just the beginning. Dr. Turndorf can’t think of a soul alive who doesn’t harbor resentment toward someone who has died.

Millions of people have been abused or mistreated by a parent or spouse who is no longer living. While traditional Western therapy offers no method for resolving unfinished business with someone who has died, thankfully her method provides a solution for the millions who suffer. Because beings are instantly transformed following bodily death, it now becomes possible to resolve issues that never could have been tackled previously.

This means that it is never too late to heal wounds, resolve resentments, make peace and repair a damaged relationship with someone who has passed over. What’s more, it has been revealed to Dr. Jamie that the departed yearn to make peace with the living, right their wrongs, and shower us with love. As one of my patients rightly said, “I wish my mother would hurry up and die so we can work this out.” Turndorf’s method can best be described as spiritual relationship therapy. Whereas mediums transmit information from those who have crossed over to those on earth in a one-sided communication, her method, by contrast, guides people to make their own direct contact and engage in a two-sided discussion. Learning how to communicate with a spirit being is easier than one might imagine. Dr. Jamie three-part method guides readers to:

  • Create a “State of Receptivity”
  • Recognize the Signs of spirit presence and
  • “Dialogue with the Departed”

1) Creating a “State of Receptivity” includes stilling the mind and breathing. Spirit is born on the breath.

2) Next cultivate awareness by outlining the often-overlooked signs of spirit presence in our lives. Simply becoming aware of the signs of spirit presence is generally sufficient to initiate reconnection. Most people are astounded to discover that their loved ones have been offering signs of their presence all along, patiently waiting for them to open the door of their hearts.

3) Lastly, Dr. Turndorf shows readers how to establish direct communication with those who have passed. Using my “Dialoguing with the Departed” technique, readers will learn how easy it is to converse with someone that has passed. In this back and forth dialogue, old resentments, and wounds are miraculously healed, thereby transforming grief into joy.

Have you ever forgotten to grieve?

Award-winning artist Lisa Sniderman (aka Aoede) has battled dermatomyositis (DM) – a rare chronic illness, a progressive muscle weakness autoimmune disease – for more than 12 years. During that time, she obsessively created albums, musicals, films, a memoir which she adapted to an audiobook – all to express her emotions and to heal. But throughout the whole process, she forgot to grieve.

Lisa discovered that she focused more on her physical well-being than her emotional and spiritual health. She spent nearly a month in the hospital treating her muscle weakness, debilitating fatigue, lack of stamina, depletion of energy and decreased mobility with physical, occupational, and speech therapy as well as numerous infusions, all to get her body working again. But where was the rehab, therapy, or prescriptions for her soul or heart?

While creating became her way to heal, it also became her escape. She hadn’t realized that she needed to grieve after losing someone she dearly loved – herself.

She says, “I’m not the same person I was before DM took my identity and independence. It introduced me to a whole new kind of vulnerability: months and years of grueling rehab, relearning to sit, stand, walk, and eventually play and sing again; more than 237 doctor appointments and endless therapies, infusion treatments, drug cocktails, and unwanted side effects.”

A few years ago, she realized that creating, expressing, and donning her “Aoede” hat wasn’t enough. She yearned to be part of something bigger than herself; a need to give back and share her story to inspire others.

The Grieving Project

In late 2019, Lisa created The Grieving Project – a powerful spoken word musical audiobook that sets the stages of grief to music. The entire audiobook, all 22 tracks, is spoken over original musical compositions. Four characters (including Lisa) with four different chronic illnesses plunge through 14 stages of grieving and thriving, through a melding of words and an emotional orchestra, and take the listener on a moving journey from surviving…to thriving.

7-Stage Process

She recognized that she first needed to grieve, which she views as a 7-stage process (adapted from renowned psychiatrist Elizabeth Kübler-Ross), that includes:

  • shock/disbelief
  • denial
  • bargaining
  • guilt
  • anger
  • depression
  • acceptance/hope

The Seven New Stages

In addition, Lisa created seven new stages of thriving that pick up after grieving:

  • awaken
  • express
  • rejuvenate
  • activate
  • connect
  • shine
  • thrive

It’s important to note, though presented as separate stages, grieving and thriving do not follow linear timelines; they are a roller coaster with myriad twists and turns, and an intense jumble of simultaneous physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual feelings and reactions. They are two sides of the same coin that shift and change with each flip.

Lisa says the audiobook “is a road map to our hearts, an invitation for you to grieve your loss, your change, your unexpected and unwanted transformation, and the inspiration and encouragement to truly thrive!”

Now more than ever, during these unsettling times, when hope and healing are necessary on so many levels, we need to continue to find ways to thrive. But first, we need to grieve… our losses, our unwanted changes, our transformations. And The Grieving Project can help us do just that.

Just as with most diseases, there is a spectrum of severity when it comes to leaky gut.

One important factor I acquired from reading this amazing book on leaky gut was that it’s crucial for individuals to maintain a healthy diet and incorporate a little dirt into their daily regimen.

The teaching in this book, helps the reader understand that creating a healthy diet, spending more time outside, eating seasonally, managing stress, and incorporating probiotic-rich foods into our diet lifestyle, can help improve overall health.

In the middle of the book on page 69, Dr. Axe discusses food and inflammation; he reports that a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming hydrogenated oils greatly increases inflammation throughout the entire body.

One fact that really grasped my attention when reading the book was the research he provided by a study in Nutrition and Cancer demonstrated that people who consume processed meats have a greater risk of cancer. In 2015, the Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorized processed meat as equivalent to cigarettes and asbestos in terms of cancer risk.

Dr. Axe devotes a whole chapter in chapter 5, which provides excellent information, which entails the worst food for your gut.  I found the information in this chapter extremely valuable and effective.

Eating well is not only necessary for well-being, but it is vital for each individual to eat well and live a healthy lifestyle so they can function well.

Sadly, most people do not eat well because of the various responsibilities that they have to do.

With looming deadlines and hard tasks that need to be accomplished immediately, people tend to always be on the go or their just too tired to prepare a healthy meal and put their health on the line as they increase their risk of developing illnesses, diseases, and even the possibility of death.

The trick is how do we get to change our lifestyle? Where do you begin?  Dr. Axe teaches you in his book how to turn your life around with the tips, tools, strategies, and techniques that are easy to incorporate in your life and very self-rewarding.

Dr. Axe not only discusses how to eat healthily, but he also shows you how to transform your health as you read this astonishing life-changing book.

Dr. Axe’s approach to the leaky gut helped me realize that WE control our bodies. We can change the way we feel by making productive lifestyle changes.

In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you can transform your health. A life filled with good health, energy, and strong mental health.
